What does it look like when two disparate spaces become one? Hopefully so seamless a visitor will barely be able to tell where one once ended and the other began.
Such was the result when Andrea Fisk and Jess Thomas Hinshaw of Shapeless Studio Architecture & Interiors combined two warehouse-like units in a Civil War-era building in Brooklyn Heights into one spacious, bright apartment (see It Takes Two: A Pair of Brooklyn Heights Apartments Reconfigured Into One, by Shapeless Studio). “Before the renovation, the space was pretty unexciting,” says Andrea. “There were some exposed brick walls and small rental-quality kitchens that seemed at least 20 years old (one in each apartment).”
Today we’re taking a closer look at the finished kitchen that (thankfully) took the place of the two rough rental kitchenettes—an instance where one is actually much (much) better than two.
